3D model description

I wanted to suspend the reel above my creator pro as it's in an alcove and getting to the back is a pain. Designed in Fusion 360 this lifts the reel away from the bracket but not too high.
-This is based on a 200mm wide reel, with an internal width of max 70mm sat on the pole.
-The pole is thin as I have very varied reel diameters in the centre. (just 20mm across)
Added a 2nd model with a screw hole in the top of the bracket of 3mm... Which may be better if supported but the roughness of the circle should provide thread anyhow without support.

-Personally, I just used the 1st one and drilled 3mm bit down from top. Saved the support hassle for a tiny hole lol.

-Oh and two things.. I could have designed an end cap but actually prefer a clothes peg as I can simply clamp closer or looser for tension and its seconds to take off and less stress on the holder. Old skool but works lol.

Secondly there is no filet/chamfer on the clamp on the inside to give the clamp maximum surface area against the shelf. I have printed many hours with 1KG and micro spools with no faults.

3D printing settings

PLA printed 30% infill on flat side. -On that note I haven't chamfered the left edge as this holds to the bed better and you'd need supports if I created the same effect on the left.
